IIRC otters can now be found in every 10km square in England – not that rare, but still lovely to see.Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
Not sure I’d be able to tell the difference between an otter, a weasel and a stoat in the dark.

Huge difference in size! An otter is easily as big as a decent size cat, stoats and weasels go from 15-25cm, (weasel), and 15-25cm (Stoat), Stoats are generally bigger built, but nether comes anywhere close to an otter, 57-95cm, not including a 35-45cm tail, and going anywhere up to 17kg.
I saw a polecat a few years back – again, hard to distinguish between an otter and a mink in low light.
Well only if you had no scale to go off as again they’re much smaller than otter.
How’s that a gaffe? It’s a well known saying, at least where I grew up in North Humberside (as it then was)
It’s not but some people only have heard of it since it became a profanisismPosted 4 years agoPigfaceMember
They really dont do well with roads at all 🙁 in Swansea we used to collect the dead ones and they would go to Cardiff Uni for examination.
I regulate a fish farm that has a sacrifice pond for the otters, it is outside the electric fence and gets a few carp and the like put in it so brer Otter can have some food. The owner reckons they are greedy buggers as they scoff the lot.Posted 4 years ago
